10 years ago today:
A Papergreat precursor

Ten years ago today — on May 14, 2009 — I posted this image and caption on Facebook. This was when Joan and I were in the midst of our book-selling phase and had the pleasure of churning through many volumes each week to assess their sellability factor.

It was eight months before Relics (the short-lived and long-vanished first iteration of Papergreat) and 80 weeks before the first Papergreat post.

You can read more than you'd ever want to know about Papergreat's origin here. And you can read more about the "good, clean Gothic fun" of Dorothy Mackie Low's Isle for a Stranger on Goodreads.

Bonus Facebook memory: And nine years ago today on Facebook, I wrote this about Ashar: "While other students in Sarah's fourth-grade class did their 'Famous American' reports on the likes of Amelia Earhart and Jackie Robinson, Sarah chose to write about Vincent Price. Win."

Win, indeed!

  1. I remember that Vincent Price report! (And the fond days of sorting the books. Let's sort more books!)
